My 3 1/2 year old has asthma and severe allergies. He's also lactose intolerant and has a sensory processing disorder with anxiety. He also gets unexplained hives randomly, less often now that he's on daily allergy medication and benedryl helps for the break through hives. His allergist suspects it's possibly a sign of an autoimmune disease or thyroid dysfunction. What are autoimmune diseases? What was she suggesting his could have? How would it be treated? How do you treat thyroid issues in children? How serious are they? I have hyperthyroidism and my father has hypothyroidism.
